About Gail Rast
Gail, our cooking teacher, is passionate about food and cooking, and her knowledge and many years of experience ensures you will increase your culinary skills and knowledge as well as draw inspiration and joy from all things food.

Our food philosophy is simple: Easy, Impressive, Delicious. Life’s A Feast is of the belief that food and cooking is one of the great pleasures of life, that a shared meal brings people together, and the ultimate compliment you can pay someone is to prepare them a meal from the heart. It is our experience that many people associate cooking and entertaining with stress, hard work and very little reward. But it doesn’t have to be that way – we believe that preparing a meal should be a joyous experience, not a chore. In line with this philosophy, our original recipes and menus have been developed with the following in mind:

1. High “wow” factor, low effort.
2. Use of quality ingredients – seasonal and local wherever possible.
3. Recipes are all designed to be easy to follow and prepare, so you will easily be able to recreate them at home.

Italian Long Lunch Cooking Class

Gail our teacher was really lovely, helpful, super organised and very informative. Everything was included in the class. It would nice to keep the aprons. All menus were provided which was a great idea for us to recreate. The porcini risotto was amazing along with the toasted almonds and sautéed green beans; my personal favourites. My husband’s was the main course prosciutto wrapped fillet of pork  + more
